Matcha Set, Ceremonial Matcha Kit, 3pc Starter Pack
The Story behind the Matcha Set
In 1959 our co-founder Dr. Andrew Weil first traveled to Japan, where his host family made his first bowl of matcha. Dr. Weil was struck by the brilliant green color of the matcha, the intricate bamboo whisk, and the simplicity and beauty of the instruments used to prepare the tea.
The chawan (bowl), the chasen (bamboo whisk), and the chashaku (bamboo scoop) have been handcrafted in much the same way for over 1,000 years! We honor authentic roots with this traditional matcha set.
"For us, it's not just about the matcha, but also taking time to pause, awaken the senses, and bring the mind and body into harmony, health, and happiness."

Preparing the perfect bowl of matcha
Making matcha can be fun and surprisingly easy! You can do a more traditional preparation, or a convenient one if you're busy. Here's quick steps anyone can use:
Heat water in a kettle until steam first appears; this will be well below boiling, about 180°F. Turn off heat.
Use a tea scoop or 1tsp to measure matcha and sift into a bowl to prevent clumps.
Add 2-4oz of water for desired consistency.
Sip and enjoy.
